Crosshair Motherboard Incorporates Easy System Tweaking Features for Building Powerful Gaming Machines

Mumbai, India January 24, 2007 - ASUS Technology Pvt. Ltd. the worldwide leader of motherboards has recently introduced an all-new product series, Republic of Gamers (R.O.G), in the India market. As the name suggests, all R.O.G products are made to provide the best performing solutions for serious gamers and overclockers. The inaugural solution of R.O.G is the Crosshair motherboard, which implements convenient features for system tweaking to provide players and overclockers with a solution to build their power gaming systems.

According to Mr. Vinay Shetty, Product Manager, Component Business, Asus India, "The ASUS Crosshair is the dream motherboard power packed with loads of technology and features like the Extreme Tweaker / Supreme FX Audio , 8 - phase EL- capless power design and much more to give the user the feel of building a very powerful gaming machine."

Easy System Tweaking with Style - LCD Poster

LCD Poster is an excellent feature for system tuning and upgrades. Most hardcore users and engineers install a debug card, which displays a two-digit code that enables them to recognize which part of the system is responsible for hanging the system during boot-up.

LCD Poster, located at the back I/O, displays the names of each boot-process instead of using codes. When system hangs due to faulty connection or configuration, the LCD Poster will freeze on the displayed process name that caused the hang up, allowing users to know exactly what needs to be fixed.

Other features tailored for building a PC are EL I/O, onboard LED, onboard switches, Q-Fan Plus and Q-Connector. Please visit the Crosshair webpage for more detail information.

Performance and Reliability - 8-Phase EL Cap-less Power Designs

This innovative designs implemented by the Crosshair embody two commitments of R.O.G: ultimate overclockability and ultimate reliability.

8-Phase EL Cap-less Power design removed the bulky cylinder-type capacitors and replaced them with chip-style polymer aluminum electrolyte capacitors, which are used in server level systems, for better spacing and thermal environment. In addition, unlike the conventional EL capacitors, which are susceptible to leakage and blowups, the new design eliminates capacitor damages once and for all.

The so called 8-phase design further delivers steadier power supply for the CPU by generating less heat than conventional power solutions and providing a cool computing environment for stable performance and higher overclocking margin. It reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage, preventing the CPU and power modules from the risk of high power stress.

Connect in the Dark - EL I/O

Today's gamers demand more than good performance. They demand features that are tailor made for their usage experience. The Crosshair comes with the EL I/O, an impressive feature that simplifies connecting devices by lighting up the back I/O panel for convenient connection in dark environments such as LAN Parties. No more jamming devices into the wrong connectors!

Sound with Clarity - SupremeFX and Array Mic

The SupremeFX audio card is designed to provide the best gaming audio experience. With 24 bit/192 kHz full sampling in all surround channels, whether you're hearing game actions through headphones or 7.1 surround speakers, all sound effects will be loud and clear.

The audio card is supplemented with the bundled sophisticated Array Microphone. While competing in game tournaments, the microphone receives only the sound coming from the reception cone and ignores the sound coming from other directions, eliminating a large number of interferences including neighboring speakers and reverberations. It also features "Echo Cancellation Technology", which eliminates the annoying echo during audio and voice applications.

Rich Software Bundle

The Crosshair bundles 3DMark 06 Advanced Edition. It is the most popular and authoritative 3D benchmark application used by professionals around the world. The 3DMark06 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark series, including advanced SM2.0 and HDR/SM3.0 Shader graphics tests and now including single, multiple core and multiple processor CPU tests as part of the 3DMark score! The accurate performance and image quality diagnostic tool, designed for DirectX®9.0c, provides all the information needed to make all other competitors look bad.

Specifications Summary:

-AMD Socket AM2 -NVIDIA nForce® 590 SLI™ MCP -Dual Channel DDR2 800/667/533 -2 x PCIe x16, support NVIDIA SLI at full x16, x16 speed -8 x SATA 3.0 Gb/p including two external ports / 1 x Ultra DMA -Dual Gigabit LAN -SupremeFX sound card featuring ADI 1988b High-Definition Audio with 8-channel surround sound.
